The Women's Network - Supporting disadvantaged women and girls
Find out more about The Women's Network
The Women’s Network is a new initiative supporting Brotherhood of St Laurence programs that benefit disadvantaged women and girls in our community. It is a forum for women to connect with one another, bringing together women from business, philanthropy, the church, government, the arts and the community sector in regular events.
The network focuses on Brotherhood programs that tackle the causes of poverty and enable women from disadvantaged backgrounds to build better lives for themselves and their families. It provides an enriching environment for women to connect with each other in a meaningful way.
With an emphasis on Brotherhood of St Laurence programs that benefit and empower women and girls, the network is committed to informed, focused and strategic social change.
